  • Ready-to-use
  • Configurable
  • Designed & manufactured in Germany

Enables quick configuration of Ethernet/Fieldbus Gateways

The UNIGATE EL Gateways connect Ethernet-Participants to all Fieldbus and Industrial Ethernet systems that are supported by Deutschmann.
The Ethernet/Fieldbus Gateway series enables a quick and easy configuration with the software WINGATE developed by Deutschmann. As a result, quickly integratable,  reliable network components, which come very close to a plug & play solution, are available as central devices for Industry 4.0 applications.
Standard Ethernet devices can be integrated into all modern, commonly used Fieldbus and Industrial Ethernet systems with the Gateway series UNIGATE EL from Deutschmann Automation. System manufacturers that use these gateways save themselves time-consuming development of suitable network interfaces. Adaption of the device firmware is not necessary.
The slim module can be easily mounted on the DIN rail.
In addition to RS232, RS485 and RS422 standard interfaces, the UNIGATE EL also provides a Fast Ethernet interface. After entering the networkspecific data, such as IP address, the device is immediately ready for use for communication via TCP/IP. If  another transport protocol is used for communication, easy configuration follows via WINGATE. Adjustable parameters are context-sensitive displayed, dependent on the changed transport protocol.

For OEM customers, Deutschmann offers the possibility for customerspecific configuration of the products. Furthermore, the gateways can be supplied in different housing colors and with the customer’s logo, upon request.
